Product Description

Explore Scientific 127mm FCD100 Carbon Fiber Apochromatic Refractor

With the Explore Scientific FCD100 127mm refractor, you'll open a universe of wonder. An ample 127mm or 5 inches of aperture will gather an incredible amount of light, taking you to the valleys and peaks of the Moon's lunar landscape, highlighting the turbulent beauty of Jupiter's stormy atmosphere and transporting you to the serene beauty of Saturn's rings. The Explore 127mm FCD100 telescope makes an ideal choice for the astrophotographer and observer alike.

Based on the Explore Scientific triplet refractor design, and building on the incredible optical quality, the FCD100 series uses one of the best types of optical glass - Hoya FCD100. Similar to Ohara FPL-53 glass, FCD100 provides a true diffraction limited design. With an air-spaced triplet design, the FCD100 series eliminates chromatic abberations for jaw-dropping brilliant contrast and gorgeous color rendition thanks to extra low dispersion glass and Explore's own EMD enhanced multi-layer coatings on all optical surfaces.

To further enhance your observing and imaging sessions, the 127mm FCD100 features an Explore Scientific 2.5" Hexagonal focuser which can support up to 10 pounds without slipping or flexure.
